, steven harper -- stephen harper, adjunct professor argues that the law profession is in need of reform. mr. harper argues that there is an over abundance of lawyers and reports that, according to estimates by the bureau of labor statistics, 45,000 law students graduate each year, and 73,600 legal jobs will be created this decade. this is about an hour. >> it turns out that lawyers -- by the way, what i am going to do is talk from between yourself minutes. i'll stop center if you start nodding off, and then what i hope happens is that fairly soon into might comments you will start thinking about things that will cause you to have a question to or may be challenged things that i have to say. that is perfectly fine. as a lot more interesting to me than to hear my own voice. turns out that lawyers leave a lot of contests that no one wants to win. we are among the most clinically depressed profession. we lead in categories like substance abuse and alcoholism and end distress generally. and when you say that to people, when i say that to people it generates some interesting responses. one re

agreement among its international law scholars that the use of lethal force is permissible under international law, and human-rights law, in response to a specific concrete and imminent threat. in the law of war context, when you are in an armed conflict, it would be permissible against civilians who are directly participating in hostilities, as those terms are defined under the laws of war and as long as other requirements are met. what has been made public in speeches by administration officials -- and i do appreciate that the speeches have been made -- alice well as the white paper that was first leaked -- is that those are not the standards being applied. if you look at the white paper alone -- remember that this was a summary of a legal memo used to justify the killing of a u.s. citizen who was a senior operational and al qaeda leader -- the restrictions that the white paper recognizes, for example, on what constitutes imminent threat, feasibility of requirements,r what appear to be limitations are in fact permissions. it turns out that the senior high level official who is

which he fought for so long in the justice. the decision was law of the land. equal justice under law. >> when a supreme court decided the gideon case, they really brought light to that phrase. it doesn't matter if you are rich, it doesn't matter if you are poor, you get the same equal chance. >> just look at what happened to gideon. the supreme court didn't set gideon free but it gave him a fair trial with a competent attorney. >> not guilty. >> clarence earl gideon was a free man. the man who won a landmark supreme court case went to live a normal living with a job pumping gas. >> when i read where it says equal justice under law, i'm very inspired by that. i'm very comforted by that. but i know a lot of people are treated unfairly. i see it as something encouraging but i don't see it yet. >> it's written into constitution and established into the goal for society to reach for and live up to. people will fall short, rights can be ignored or even trampled. with nothing more than a pencil and knowledge. >> if you know your rights you can protect your rights. if you don't know your r

opposing this? >> well, listen the democrats don't want to ange labor laws that have been around since 19 8. essentially i think what is happening the gop is trying to come up with a bill that appeals to middle class working families. think they have a lot of work to do if this is the idea they come up with because the senate will probably veto or not pass it. the president will probably veto it. and thing is, it is aimed at 40 hour plus worker, right? the guy or woman who works 40 hours. i get that i'm okay with giving private sector the option. i just don't know you need a law to do it. you're right, it feels like the bureaucrats in washington, d.c. are monkeying around with labor law when they don't need to do it. let the company come up with this on their own. >> here's the problem. the problem right now if you're working more than 40 hours the law provides you are obligated to do it. so the employer must pay that 1.5 times the salary for every hour over 40. dennis: exactly. >> why should that be the law? why can't the private sector have that option? dennis: isn't this bill really aime

of the change in law that my friend wants to see happen will cost an enormous amount of money, millions of dollars. and the coburn amendment doesn't address the costs and normally he would company do that in an amendment. the costs that -- the corps would incur in order to train their workers to carry weapons or hire outside security at that. so i appreciate and respect the views of my friend, but i also think that this is something we shouldn't do today on this bill now. especially when we're seeing a lot of talk about more home-grown terrorism. we want to protect our infrastructure. now, it may be that -- that the corps ought to look at more protection of these facilities. i'm willing to look at that. but i do think we're making a problem where there isn't a problem. people can go on corps land and use their guns for hunting and fishing, recreation, target shooting, and i think that's working out fine. this seems to be an amendment that's solving a problem that, frankly, doesn't exist. at least i looked -- i have 38 million people in my state, it's a lot of people. i asked do we have

of constitution and bill of rights. there are 22,000 gun-control laws out there, most of which are not even enforced and what add more to it? it will not do any good if you do not enforce the ones you have now. that there are no background checks at gun shows, that is false. private sales between individuals, yes there's no background check there. you dogo to a gun show have to pass a background check or have it submitted at that time because only licensed dealers can sell at those places legally. there is a lot of misinformation out there. it is appalling but as i said the bottom line is the integrity of the constitution and bill of rights. can they just be cast aside? or are they worth the paper they are written on? the other thing that is kind of worrysome is this talk about registrations and confis cation. i do not know how that will work. here's my theory on it, if you license a constitutional liberty it ceases to become a liberty thebecomes a privilege at hand of government. last thing i want to make a comment on is an old saying, outlawed, only outlaws will have guns." both are very

from? >> guest: well, that's part of the law, and it's been part of common law since 1841 and part of the copyright act since 1976. >> host: what's an example of fair use today? >> guest: well, fair use is done by students everywhere when they quote a scholar or an encyclopedia or wiki media or my other source in their paper. they get to use those words as a result of fair use. journalists do it every day when they say the think tank report said this, quote. they're able to use that material is all copyrighted, but they're able to use it. >> host: because they source it? >> guest: no. actually, sourcing doesn't have anything to do with fair use, although it is always a polite thing to do, to give credit to people. but credit, there's many examples of fair use where you wouldn't even -- you, in fact, never need to give credit in order to be within the copyright law. >> host: such as? >> guest: you would make people upset if you didn't frequently. but any kind of challenge that an artist makes, for instance, uses material from lots of different places and doesn't necessarily cite it.

approach, senator, which i believe is required under the law that yo helped to instigate and pass. >> i appreciate that. i think it was important to hear the word "flexibility" used in your response when you're talking about the performance standards because recognizing that you may have different technologies, different approaches there, yes, it's important to have that backup, if you will, that standby system, but the designs might be different given what the different operators are utilizing, so it is important, again, that we have the regulations that are clearly defined well in advance hopefully of the season so that that level of certainty moving forward is there. one final question, madam secretary, and this relates to bia and ihs support contract costs. last year the supreme court in the rama case held that tribes are entitled to full contract support cause under their agreements with the federal government. what we're seeing, though, with the budget requests for dia and ihs, they proposed a separate appropriations account solely for contract support costs. that include statutor
